Gigabit to homes - US Lecture


[link to this post]
 
I've just been watching a lecture by John Cioffi (father of DSL, inventor of vectoring).
It covered the concept of cheap Gigabit network access, and where it is likely to come from.

It is very much bang-up-to-date with where the US is with DSL, cable, FTTC, FTTP and wireless, and applies just as much to us.

It also has an interesting little bit on economics, and the threshold $$$ cost that acts as the decision point for whether to deploy or not. Our threshold £££ might be different, but the reasons are probably the same.

There's a hint about how much it is costing Google in Kansas. It ain't pretty.

He gets a 13 minute introduction, covering his history in the development of DSL etc. The presentation is around 45 minutes.

John Cioffi Lecture, 2013, University of Southern California

Interesting, didn't realise that 40% of phone lines globally had DSL on them or that Google was spending between $3,000-8,000 per customer in Kansas City.

Thanks for the Video link, it's very interesting stuff.

By combining all the available technologies we have already like shared WiFi together with existing coper twisted pairs (Bonded) to increase speeds sounds like a less expensive alternative to a full nation wide FTTP roll out.

Its also good to hear how we in the UK get cheaper deals than those in the US. smile

FreeServe @ 56Kbs -> BT Business (ADSL) @ 512kbps -> AOL 2Mbps -> TalkTalk upto 24Meg (19Mbps) -> SkyBB upto 10Meg (8.4Mbps) :: Now, Patiently waiting for FTTC then upgrade to FTTPoD
